Exposed undergarments

NFHS test question says exposed undergarments are considered part of the official uniform and may be of any solid color. Here is the statement on the NF website
3-2-7Clarified that exposed undergarments must be a solid color.
Rule book says must be a solid school color. solid color and solid school color are not the same.

I don't know about you guys, but that's probably not a rule I'd want to spend too much time on. I can see how this could easily end badly.

I care about this issue long enough to fill in my circle for the test. I'm not going to be color testing their sliding shorts.

Is there a place on the lineup card to list school colors? No way to enforce it then, solid color on the other hand can be so I'd stick with solid colors.

Was a few years back doing an ASA womens A, AA state. One team showed up in basketball jerseys with sports bras underneath. ASA says exposed undergarments should be the same color as the shirt or pants. Tourny organizers gave teams until the 2nd day to co-ordinate. Had one player say to me no problem, not wearing one and proceeded to prove it. Sure made running a little tough at the start of the game.

I was just wondering what the correct answer should be for the test.

There are times when rules must be strictly enforced.. we are talking about the integrity of the game for chrisakes.

Leaning a little far forward, huh? Did you also have troubles getting into the slot?

solid color
They went farther and showed us a slide (wooohee) and undergarments (exposed) can be of ANY color as long as its solid. including optic yellow. then you would refer to "is it distracting" on the pitcher.

I put false on the test and made 100 so they must want school colors only for testing.

That isn't what I just heard at the state NFHS clinic. Pretty sure the slide had black, white, grey or school color (all solid). However, clinician was specific as to not getting into the shade of the color.

BTW, AFAIC, the school colors are anything similar to what is already included on the uniform
